Hmm. This topic came up during lunch break today with my friends.

How do you believe you will die?

I personally think I'll be murdered one day. :) - I'll probably piss someone off just a little to much...

Any thoughts or ideas?

Drinking, drugs, smoking, natural causes, act of god?

Also - how would you prefer to die? I would die by laughter if possible.
- Luke.

How do you believe you will die?

1) As Don Schlitz so poetically put it, "The best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep."

2) Whipped into shape to death by an alluring gym teacher.

Not possible if you only consume pure Italian Gelato.

Probably smoking related, now my only vice.

Dunno.......

Seeing as how living through my hell raising, hard drinking, car crashing youth didn't kill me, it will probably be pretty low key.

Preferred method?

LOL...this thread just reminded me of something one of my buddies said so many years ago.

Was about 21 at the time. We had just gone out for a beer drinking tour of half of the state at speeds not kind to laws or tires. Almost got in a wreck.....(not our fault...and I mean that)...

Got back home, and he said something that I had forgotten until just now.

He said..."Ya know...we are all so crazy and such, but I'll bet we die sitting on the crapper some day and just keel over."

I fully expect my head to explode one day while reading a post from a S@H user demanding better service.

As a S@H user, you must have learned the value of patience in scientific endeavors.

Statistically, I will probably go slowly, unaware and drooling in some hospital bed, surrounded by expensive medical equipment and staff. All this will be paid for by my children's taxes. A parent's revenge.

I will most likely have a heart attack. Family history points in that direstion.
But the good news in that due to the beer, I will already be embalmed! :)

I cann't think of anything, so I guess I just forget about the whole thing and just keep on living.

One of those horrible slow painful diseases or cancer, unless I get lucky and some drunk creams me on the freeway.

Family history, grand parents, 1 child birth, 1 high blood pressure, 1 stroke, 1 elective surgery. Parents, both cancer.
